Quilts made with love and care by a dedicated Terrington St Clement women have become the tresured possession of sick children and their families across the West Midlands.
Pam Fox, 84, has been making quilts and donating them to Project Linus UK since losing her husband John back in 2005.
Mrs Fox has made almost 50 quilts before sending them to a Project Linus Uk coordinator based in Sutton Coldfield.
Mrs Fox said: “I started making quilts when I lost my husband, but I didn’t really get into it until I moved to Terrington five years ago.
“I saw an advert in a magazine and it has kept me busy ever since. I try to make at least one a month.
“I’ve always enjoyed sewing and I thought it was something I could do. I’ve also made teddy bears out of felt and materials which my friends have given me.
“I just wanted to put a smile on the children’s faces, bless their hearts, and will continue to make them while my hands allow me to.”
Project Linus UK is run by a team of volunteer coordinators, who organise sewing and fundraising events across the UK.
The group liaise with their local hospitals, shelters and refuges to distribute quilts and blankets.
